AIDS: A Selective Bibliography.
Candaras, Barbara J.
Intended for use primarily by the general adult public, this pathfinder lists selected information sources on the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) that are in the collections of the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo Health Sciences Library, the Central Library-Buffalo, and the Erie County Public Library. A broad range of references dealing with various aspects of AIDS are included, and many of these sources will provide access to information that is suitable for students and researchers as well. Because of the importance of currency of information on this topic and the massive amount of literature available, the sources chosen carry a 1987 or more recent copyright date. The pathfinder begins with a definition of AIDS and a list of relevant subject headings that can be used to locate information on the topic. The bibliography, which makes up the greater part of the pathfinder, is then presented. It is divided into the following sections: (1) Circulating Books; (2) Reference Sources; (3) Journals; (4) Videocassettes; and (5) Pamphlet File Articles. Concluding the bibliography are the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of AIDS organizations not represented in the pamphlet file and local sources of information. Selected for their demonstration of the physical aspects of the disease as well as the social, psychological, and political aspects, the materials listed cover such topics as AIDS treatment and therapy, legal issues (e.g., case studies), statistical data, prevention education, and counseling and support groups. It is noted that sources have been chosen which represent any number of groups affected by the virus, including heterosexuals and homosexuals, women, children, minorities, hemophiliacs, and intravenous drug users.
